Santorum: Baby Created in Rape Still a “Gift”

Robin Marty

Asked whether he would refuse to allow his own daughters to obtain abortions if raped, Santorum explains that despite the facts of the conception, the baby is still a "gift."

Most candidates, when questioned on whether they could honestly force their family members to carry a pregnancy to term after a rape, will at the very least hem and haw a little over the issue.

But not former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.  He says the baby is still a gift, and he would counsel his daughters to believe the same.
